star this property answer text <p>In order to charge and prosecute hate crimes, the CPS uses the legal definition provided by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and Criminal Justice Act 2003. The shared police and CPS definition of hate crime is based on the perception of the victim or any other person and allows for case flagging and monitoring as well as appropriate victim support, it does not affect the charge.</p><p>This flagging definition comes from the recommended definition in the Macpherson report which was published in 1999 as a result of the inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. The Macpherson Report found a lack of confidence within communities that hate crime was being treated seriously by the police and Criminal Justice System and recommended that the definition of a racist incident should be, ‘any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person’. Putting the victim’s perception at the heart of the definition gives a clear signal that, once flagged as a hate crime, an appropriate investigation will follow and evidence to support the law on hostility will be proactively sought. The definition seeks to encourage victims to report and to increase confidence in the Criminal Justice System.</p>

It has accumulated significant funds through further donations and income over the years, as set out in the <strong><ins class="ministerial">attached </ins></strong>chart <del class="ministerial">below</del>. It is currently estimated to be worth over £460 million.</p><p>The terms of the deed of Trust for the National Fund are such that the Trustees are required to accumulate the net income and profits of the trust fund until the value of the fund along with its accumulated income, when added to the value of any other funds applicable for the same purpose, is sufficient to discharge the entirety of the National Debt. Given the terms of the trust, the money is currently ‘locked’ in the fund.</p><p>The Attorney General’s Office is working with the Charity Commission and the Fund’s trustees to help resolve this legally complicated matter.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

I have asked the Authority to reply<del class="ministerial">.</del><ins class="ministerial"> and I will place a copy of their letter in the Library</ins><br /><ins class="ministerial">of the House.</ins></p><p><em><strong>Letter from John Pullinger CB, National Statistician, to Baroness Tonge, dated 07 March 2018</strong></em></p><p>Dear Baroness Tonge,</p><p>As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am replying to your Parliamentary Questions asking (a) whether the incidence of neonatal mortality and morbidity has decreased over the past five years (HL5969); (b) what was the incidence of neonatal mortality and morbidity in (1) 2000–05, (2) 2005–10, and (3) 2010–15 (HL5970); and (c) what was the incidence of neonatal mortality and morbidity in (1) 2014–15, (2) 2015–16, and (3) 2016–17 (HL5971).</p><p>The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is responsible for publishing statistics on deaths registered in England and Wales. Statistics on deaths are normally published using calendar years. Neonatal mortality figures are available for both the year the death was registered and the year the death occurred. Comparisons over time are more meaningful using death occurrences, to allow for delays in registering deaths. The latest year for which death occurrence figures are available is 2015 [see note 1 below]. The neonatal mortality figures for 2016 will be published on 14 March 2018 and the data for 2017 will be published in early 2019.</p><p>Table 1 below provides the number of neonatal deaths and the neonatal mortality rates per 1,000 live births for England and Wales, for each calendar year from 2000 to 2015.</p><p>Because the number of neonatal deaths each year is relatively small, there is likely to be some random fluctuation, and no single year since 2000 shows a statistically significant change from the preceding year. However, there has been a generally downward trend throughout the period. In the five years 2011-15, the lowest neonatal mortality rate was in 2014, and this was significantly lower than in 2011 and all previous years. The rate in 2015 was higher than in 2014, but is still significantly lower than in 2011 (taking into account rounding of the figures to one decimal place).</p><p>NHS Digital is responsible for publishing statistics on NHS patient care in England. There is no widely accepted measure of neonatal morbidity, however trends in the admission of neonates to hospital may be useful information. Therefore, figures based on Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) have been given here.</p><p>Table 2 below provides the number of neonatal finished consultant episodes (FCEs) and corresponding neonatal hospitalisation rate per 1,000 live births for England, for each financial year from 2000-01 to 2016-17, and the five-year periods 2001-02 to 2004-05, 2005-06 to 2009-10, and 2010-11 to 2014-15. Note that HES data include activity ending in the year in question and run from April to March, e.g. 2012-13 includes activity ending between 1st April 2012 and 31st March 2013.</p><p>Changes to the HES figures over time need to be interpreted in the context of improvements in data quality and coverage (particularly in earlier years), improvements in coverage of independent sector activity (particularly from 2006-07) and changes in NHS practice. For example, apparent reductions in activity may be due to a number of procedures which may now be undertaken in outpatient settings and so no longer include in admitted patient HES data. Conversely, apparent increases in activity may be due to improved recording of diagnosis or procedure information.</p><p>There has been year on year fluctuation in the number and rate of hospital episodes for neonates over the period of interest, but with a clear overall upward trend. The hospitalisation rate in 2015-16 was significantly higher than five years before. However, as noted above, it is likely that the trend is influenced to some extent by factors such as changing clinical practice and recording.</p><p>Yours sincerely,</p><p>John Pullinger</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Note 1:</p><p><a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/childmortalitystatisticschildhoodinfantandperinatalchildhoodinfantandperinatalmortalityinenglandandwales" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/childmortalitystatisticschildhoodinfantandperinatalchildhoodinfantandperinatalmortalityinenglandandwales</a></p><p> </p><p>Table 1: Neonatal deaths occurring in England and Wales, numbers and rates, 2000 to 2015</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Neonatal deaths</p></td><td><p>Neonatal mortality rate</p></td><td><p>Lower confidence limit</p></td><td><p>Upper confidence limit</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2000</p></td><td><p>2,335</p></td><td><p>3.9</p></td><td><p>3.7</p></td><td><p>4.0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2001</p></td><td><p>2,137</p></td><td><p>3.6</p></td><td><p>3.4</p></td><td><p>3.7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2002</p></td><td><p>2,126</p></td><td><p>3.6</p></td><td><p>3.4</p></td><td><p>3.7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2003</p></td><td><p>2,264</p></td><td><p>3.6</p></td><td><p>3.5</p></td><td><p>3.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2004</p></td><td><p>2,209</p></td><td><p>3.5</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td><td><p>3.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005</p></td><td><p>2,227</p></td><td><p>3.4</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td><td><p>3.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006</p></td><td><p>2,325</p></td><td><p>3.5</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td><td><p>3.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007</p></td><td><p>2,248</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td><td><p>3.1</p></td><td><p>3.4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008</p></td><td><p>2,261</p></td><td><p>3.2</p></td><td><p>3.1</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>2,205</p></td><td><p>3.1</p></td><td><p>3.0</p></td><td><p>3.3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>2,123</p></td><td><p>2.9</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td><td><p>3.1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>2,135</p></td><td><p>2.9</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td><td><p>3.1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>2,042</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td><td><p>2.7</p></td><td><p>2.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>1,871</p></td><td><p>2.7</p></td><td><p>2.6</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>1,762</p></td><td><p>2.5</p></td><td><p>2.4</p></td><td><p>2.7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>1,838</p></td><td><p>2.6</p></td><td><p>2.5</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr></tbody></table><ol><li><p><em>Neonatal deaths are defined as deaths of live-born infants at less than 28 days</em></p></li><li><p><em>Rates are per 1,000 live births</em></p></li><li><p><em>The 95% lower and upper confidence limits have been provided.
